I just received a message from Mozella that FF16 is no longer supported by MAX 10.5 and I need to get a new computer? Has anyone else gotten such a message and what do I need to do?

TIA,

Bill

More details on doing this. Get TenFourFox and basically continue using Firefox. It gets all the necesssary Firefox security updates and will use all the Firefox Add-ons. If you have an Intel Mac, it will run under Rosetta/PPC emulation, which shouldn't slow you down much, if at all--at least give it a try. All your bookmarks, everything, will still be there. It will use your current Firefox Profile. Plug-ins like Flash are disabled by default, but they can easily be reenabled. Although I would leave out Java and use Flash with discretion (get the FlashBlock Add-on, which will set a placeholder for Flash content), since there are known Flash exploits for older versions of Flash. TenFourFox home page http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/ TenFourFox for G5 download http://tenfourfox.googlecode.com/files/TenFourFoxG5-10.0.9.app.zip Reenable plug-ins http://tenfourfox.blogspot.com/2011/07/60b1-available.html  FlashBlock https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/flashblock/
